Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0940114A2] The device for cooling and condensing steam formed in the washing vessel (10) of a dishwashing machine includes a chamber (16) containing cold water which causes the condensation of the steam, and a fan (20) which transfers steam-laden air from the washing vessel (10) to the chamber (16). A plurality of overlapping plates (24) is located in this latter, each of which includes a base part (26) and a side wall (28) to define a cavity (30) containing water. A space (36) into which the steam-laden air to be condensed can flow is defined between the base wall (26) of at least one plate (24) and the upper edge (34) of the side wall (28) of the immediately underlying plate (24). <IMAGE>
